October 3rd Approaches & First Hero Trailer!

Posted by Airship Syndicate (Creator)


Wow, less than two weeks and Battle Chasers: Nightwar will be released. We can hardly believe it. It's been our lives for over two years now (since well before Kickstarter!) and we're proud to have had this community with us along the way.

We've been hard at work taking feedback and fixes from our beta and putting them into critical patches for the game (including a movement speed increase in dungeons - coming soon!). Everyone who has participated has been a big help... thank you!

Switch Info

As of now, the Switch version is delayed and we're not quite sure till when. We're waiting on some updates to Unity that we'll need before we can comfortably promise a release date for the game. We know this is a hotly anticipated version of Nightwar, so we don't take such delays lightly, but our #1 priority is making sure the version we release performs up to expected standards. 

Once we have a reliable date we can promise, you'll be the first to know. We don't expect this delay to be significant, but it's a bit of an unknown.

It's still possible to change your selected platform on if you'd prefer not to wait. We appreciate everyone's patience (we're excited for it, too).

Hero Spotlight Trailer: Knolan

To celebrate the upcoming game launch, we'll be releasing a series of hero spotlight trailers. First up is Knolan... check it out!


Art Book

Udon is nearly finished with the layout for the Kickstarter-exclusive Battle Chasers: Nightwar art book. Check out a sneak peek!


 Steam Trading Cards

We just finished creating and uploading the set of Steam trading cards that will be available to collect. You'll have 15 to gather, plus an assortment of badges to craft, wallpapers to earn and Steam emoticons to grab. Here are a few samples!

      Physical artbook please!

      I still haven't gotten a response :(

    3. Tjuhl on

      I have been playing the beta for a while now, my party is at lvl 12 it so now and I’m greatly enjoying it this far. Looking forward to play more! :)

      And yeah, that art book looks interesting and nice to have (by itself)...

    4. Buzzsaw on

      Great update, with one tragic flaw: I checked my backer info and don't (seemingly) have a digital art book as part of it, nor can I discern how I could add such a thing.

      Am I missing something, or did I simply miss something?

      A physical art book add-on *would* be really nice.

      As long as the Switch version comes out before the next Nintendo console, I don't care how much I have to wait!

      I'd love to have the option for the art book also.
      The game is an absolute gem so far :D
      Great job everyone!

      I'll add my voice to the choir - "Would really like to get the art book as an add-on"

      Its a travesty that it wasn't offered except it in the $200 tier ;)

    9. Shaman At Dawn on

      Alright, sent an email.

    10. Miguel Moreira on

      When/How do we choose our t-shirt sizes btw?

      Hope to get the artbook as an add-on!

      Shaman: all backers (except those below the $20 tier) have beta access right now. We sent out a few rounds of e-mails. If you didn't catch any, send a message to You'll need to have an account on to get setup.

      fixing to be released? When do backers get to play? I never got any notice about any sort of "early access".

      Really, really, really would love to have a chance to purchase an art book down the line.
      Also, I've never read any of the original comics. Any chance of a physical re-release?

    15. Thrakker on

      I agree with Tressler. Didn’t pick up the full $200 tier as I didn’t really want the t shirt or art print, but I’d love to be able to get the art book to go with my Udon Darksiders ones

    16. Tressler on

      Is there a way to get the art book as an add-on?

    17. Dott on

      I’m also behind you for pushing the Switch version if you think it needs it.
      I want it a lot but I’ll prefer to play it in good condition.

    18. ChatonPute on

      I'm all behind your decision to push the date for the Switch until the game runs well.
      I can't wait to play but I will be patient

    19. Patryk Pasinski on

      So excited, can't wait for the official release! Looking forward to the art book. :D

    20. Tomasz Rospondek

      Speed up in dungeons! Great news!
      Game is incredible! Thanks for this campaign ☺️
